Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

The 17th Annual EGGtoberfest was amazing - here are the highlights Click Here

What is the most creative, out of the box thing you have made on the egg (Egg fest T-minus 8 days)

So what was an egg fest is now a grilling fest, but should be fun regardless.  I am asking for suggestions of fun stuff that you have made that you would consider lending me the idea.  Of course, I would like to win but more importantly, if I get a bunch of people who say "wow, I never would have thought of making that on the grill/egg" then I consider it a success.

3 summers ago, I made grilled peaches, with a dollup of greek honey yogurt and a sprinkling of granola.  Although I don't want to do that again, I would rather do that than something traditional.  

any suggestions are appreciated-

Thanks-  P

    Roasted Bone Marrow: http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1153766/roasted-bone-marrow-trying-new-things-suggestions-welcome#latest

    I've made it couple of times for guests and they all look at me like "WTF?  you want me to eat that?"

    And of course, when they try it, they love it.

    I like the idea, but not sure if I would want to tackle bone marrow for 250 people.  Especially since I have never made or tasted it myself-

    Grilled Romaine lettuce is not uncommon but it always gets a great reaction from folks who never had it off an egg before. Also is is simple and fast.

    Forget creative, what will be very popular.  ABTs, wings, meatballs, sausage, meat on a stick.  I bet grilled pineapple would make an impression.

    We did smores sandwiches at egging in the mountains. White bread buttered then nutella and marshmellows with crushed graham crackers inside. Grilled directly on the grate. They're good.

    Scotch Eggs.  Serving a breakfast dish might be just the right kind of curveball to stand out.  Plus, these things are pretty easy, and ridiculously good.  Night before prep, and about an hour cook time in the AM.

    http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1154675/bbq-scotch-eggs/p1

    I'd cook at a little higher temperature than 275...maybe 325 or so.  Sausage options are pretty wide open.  I tried sweet italian ground sausage and it was good, but I think next time I'll opt for a sage flavor, or maybe maple.

    I'm not much of a fish person, but I sometimes make salmon fillets with lemon, dill and Johnny's Seafood Seasoning; then you completely cover them with sour cream!  The sour cream keeps the salmon nice and moist and the smoke picks up this AMAZING smoky flavor.  (It turns a little brown and looks like meringue.)

    I mentioned this a few years ago and I just found the thread:


    (You could also grill up some angel food cake for strawberry shortcake.  It's awesome.)

    My pizza is always a big hit and should be easy to pull off at any Fest. Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos 1 hour at 800. The bark is un-flipping real. =P~
    That would be awesome with Micky's "Lump Wings"

    How about a chili cheese dog fatty.  My buddies request them more than anything else I make.

    If this is your first fest pace yourself.  Do one less dish than you plan and do at least one meal that requires about an hour to cook....that way you can go mingle and taste what other eggers are cooking.

    I was browsing through APL's "Serious Barbeque" tonight, and a recipe jumped out at me: BBQ'd eggs.  Boil 'em for 12 minutes, cool in ice water, roll to crack the shells (but don't remove), and them smoke on the Egg low (225) for 45 minutes.
    I haven't tried this (yet) but it sounds good, and would be fairly easy for your big crowd.

    Rumor has it that Pizzas are already being done by some folks.  However, Cajun Pizza sounds mighty tasty for the cook!

  • Can't find the link right now, but someone posted brownies cooked in oranges, they looked tremendous and support original. I know this is an older thread, did the eggfest already happen? Lots of great ideas around here.

    I've done the bacon wrapped, cookie dough stuffed jalapenos too, those are surprising and delicious.

    Cheers

    @Black_Badger-  the event is on Aug 17.  

    Bacon wrapped cookie dough sounds amazing!  The egg dishes to as well, especially the potato chip quiche.  Unfortunately, I dont eat many yellow things (eggs or bananas).   

    Thanks for the ideas-  Please keep them coming!

    I will let you all know what I end up going with if I ever make a decision-
